SHANNON PASCOE
TRAINER

Shannon received her doctorate in physical therapy in 2006. After graduation she chose to specialize in the area of oncological rehab with emphasis on breast cancer recovery, low back pain, postural dysfunction and core instability. Helping people heal and bringing them back to function has always been a strong passion of hers. After practicing as a PT for a few years, Shannon was introduced to Pilates not only as a tool to use in her rehab, but also, as an amazing work out to improve her athletic interests (ie: cycling, trail running and soccer). The specific LAGREE method of Pilates stepped up the level of performance/challenge tenfold!

Shannon appreciates the 40 minutes of full mind and body focus, as it allows her to practice positive energy, vitality, growth and fulfillment in every aspect of her life.

Shannon Sidwell
Trainer

I have been working in health and fitness for over 19 years, including my tenure as a NASM certified personal trainer at Endorphin Athletic Club for the past 9. An athlete since childhood, I was inspired by my parents -my father was a college All-American football player and high school football coach; and my mother, a practicing Buddhist and yoga instructor. My family taught me of the connection between the physical self and the mind and the spirit, while inspiring a great love for anything physical. Using these tools, I played sports and practiced yoga... throughout my childhood into adulthood. I am now instilling this love of movement in my five year old son Jack, my greatest accomplishment. While working in the corporate world, I began a distance running career that ultimately brought me to personal training and I have completed 26 marathons since 1999. After suffering a serious running injury 12 years ago, I used Pilates to rehabilitate myself. This introduction to the Pilates method made me a believer that movement (or lack thereof) changes your entire life perspective. I obtained my classical Pilates certification through Polestar Pilates and later became certified to teach the Lagree Method that I currently teach in Denver. I am a Maddog Athletics Spin certified instructor. In addition, I recently certified through the Rhythm Revolution Beat Clinic to create the most motivating musical experience for all my students. My philosophy is no matter the circumstance, we have choices in how we meet challenges. My sense of purpose has enabled me to overcome many difficult situations using movement as a vehicle and I have helped countless others to do the same. I believe in the power exercise has to transform people's lives. My goal in every teaching opportunity is to provide students with an uplifting experience, to put a smile on their face, to cultivate the skills they need to tackle the struggles in their day or maybe even the deeper struggles in their lives. My personal goals, values and mission are to promote, health, exercise, positive thought and the importance of living life fully & consciously every day.

Carlynn Martin
Trainer

I have over 4 years of Personal and Group Fitness Training along with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Sociology from the University of Denver. I have always been passionate about health and fitness, being that I grew up playing every sport imaginable. I played Division I soccer at the University of Denver and since I have continued to play non-competitively and also participate in several charity events, such as the MS 150, as well as competed in several marathons and triathlons. I am continually looking for ways to expand my knowledge of fitness and challenge myself and others with fitness goals. I have worked with a wide variety of clientele; many who have a general interest of getting into shape, long term and short term fitness goals, and even collegiate level athletes. I love it when my clientele can work hard and have fun at the same time. I have made it a point to center my career on helping people change their lives both mentally and physically. I believe the more ways an individual can stay active, from trying different fitness classes to hiking or skiing on the weekends, the more likely they are to continually live a healthy and happy life. A quote that I live by: "If your dreams don't scare you, then they aren't big enough."

Aliza Schoen

I broke into fitness over 20 years ago when accidentally stumbling into an aerobics class, and was immediately hooked. Fitness is a true passion for me, helping people achieve their personal goals while having a good time and energizing their souls is important. I am certified as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor teaching cycling, TRX, HIIT, Insanity, step, and total body conditioning classes. 4 years ago I became certified as a health coach. Working one on one with individuals to make healthy food choices and incorporate exercise into their lives has been amazing. Most recently, I decided to expand my fitness background and became Lagree certified. Combining cardio, strength, balance and flexibility, and improving body composition in one workout has been rewarding. I am excited to be a part of Pilates Evolution and share my passion!

Heather Eaton
Trainer

Beginning at the age of 17, I made my living as a professional model. Because modeling required me to “look good” I spent a lot of time in different gyms doing different workout “fads” yet it always felt more like WORK than working-out and I was never inspired. Then I discovered Pilates and found my passion; I began accomplishing amazing physical challenges I never could have imagined I was capable of. With every class my confidence grew and my body, mind and spirit developed; every day and every class I became a better version of myself. I became obsessed. Now, as a Pilates Evolution instructor, it is my personal commitment to my students to be their one-of-a kind, rockstar instructor, guiding them through unique custom made inspirational, fitness experiences that I design to benefit each students body, mind and soul. When I am not teaching a class, I am taking a class, when I am not taking a class I am in my “laboratory” creating innovative customized workouts and soundtracks that push my students harder than they ever thought they could go. My classes are each individually designed by me to show both me and my students that our strength can and will surprise us. We can become addicted and obsessed with reshaping our bodies, our self-image and our spirits; one class at a time.

My journey began over a year ago when I decided to change the way I was living and feeling. After having a spinal fusion and two children, I needed to strengthen my core and overall body. I began taking Barre classes and quickly added Pilates Evolution and OTF into my weekly routine. I fell in love with the changes in strength and flexibility I was seeing.

Every Lagree routine includes well rounded movements that target the whole body and is adaptable for beginners up to the most advanced clients.

Leslie Cikra
Trainer

I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Denver in 2015. I've been involved in athletics since I was a kid and played collegiate volleyball at the University of Tennessee. Following my college career, I continued to pursue my volleyball career professionally. I sustained a season-ending back injury during my third pro season in South Korea, and found Lagree during my rehab journey back in Denver. A fellow PE instructor introduced me to Lagree and I have been in love with it ever since. I thrive on a good physical challenge and I love that this method really has no limits. I decided to become a Lagree instructor because I'm addicted to the workout and love that a 40 minute class can be so hard! I am also a certified yoga instructor. I utilize my knowledge of the body from years of professional volleyball and weight lifting to create physically challenging, fun workouts that push my students beyond what they think they are capable of. When I'm not in the studio I'm adventuring with my best friend, Josh and our two pups, Maverick and Mochi. I love yoga, hiking, camping and pretty much anything active and outside. I believe in the life-changing power of movement and mindfulness, and am so excited to be apart of the Pilates Evolution team!
